Very nice photos, Lyn! Such beautiful sandstone and ravine they're riding through (would also make a great upcoming SKIPOOTERKY activity). And what is that long, carrot-looking trunk your mum is standing next to? So cute of her to put a hat on it

Great pictures Lyn and beautiful tatting work. Many years ago I decided I wanted to learn tatting because I have some that was done by my great grandmother and I was curious as to how it was done. I gave up after one small piece, it is a lot of work.

Amazing pictures Lyn! It seems like the ideal holidays for me!
I loved your tatting, it looks fair enough you took the first prize!
Thanks for sharing, Lyn!

One of the pictures in the Blue Mountains is of a particular rock formation. That formation is known as the Three Sisters.

Nick that carrot looking thing is a termite mound. They are found all over the top end of Australia. We have two kinds of termite mounds, a Magnetic Termite Mound a the Conical one. The magnetic ones point North and South with the flat sides facing east and west so that they can regulate the temperature within the colony. In the Northern Territory two of our parrots species build nests in the conical type of mound. They are the Golden Shoulder Parrot and the Hooded Parrot which are the same genetic family as the Red Rump Parrot found around me. Sometimes inexperienced birds will try to build a nest in the magnetic type but because they are very thin they usually dig right through to the other side. These termite mounds can be extremely large being many metres high and can have a diameter of 30 mtrs.

The new pictures are wonderful as well, your mum is so funny with the croc, her new mining man, and the train

That long road of trees is beautiful, too!
